Abstract: Size spectrum ecological models have emerged as a conceptually simple way to model a large community of individuals which grow and change trophic level during their lives. They are a subset of physiologically structured models where growth (and thus maturation) is food dependent, and processes are formulated in terms of individual level processes. A key feature is that of a size spectrum, where the total abundance of individuals at size scales negatively with size: there are more small things than big things. Mizer is a software package for implementing size spectrum ecological models using the R statistical programming environment. The package has been developed to model marine ecosystems that are subject to fishing.
